On Human Being: A Spiritual Anthology

Olivier Clement

Paperback 2002-10-01

Publisher Description

When the author of the widely-acclaimed "Roots of Christian Mysticism" thinks about human nature, its challenges, problems, joys and fulfillment, he does so with originality. At the same time, his thought is rooted in the experience of the early Christian centuries. The result is a book that sees humanity in fundamentally spiritual terms. Clement begins by exploring a response to the dysfunctional aspects of nature, and then looks at how we are persons made in the image of the divine and in communion with one another; in the light of what emerges, the author discovers fresh understandings of sexuality, politics, the role of humanity in the cosmos and the power of beauty; his discussion ends with facing our society's unmentionable question: death.

Here is a fine book for all explorers into the deeper meaning of what it is to be human.
